Excellent food plus it is right on the beach. Great hamburgers and the snails were creamy and cheesy. The Lindt brownies and craft beer ice cream were to die for. Loved it. Friendly staff and a great barrista. My go to place in Port Elizabeth

One of the nicest restaurants in PE, with a stunning view at all hours of the day. Always feels special to share a meal overlooking the ocean.

Had a breakfast for two. We ordered eggs Benedict with salmon and scrambled eggs with bacon, tomato salsa and mushrooms. Portion sizes were great and the food very tasty. Service was very efficient. The meals are very reasonably priced. Overall a good experience.
